Chase:Every:Second

Enjoying every second of life and running.

A quick wrap up of 2015 – October through December

Leave a comment

Once again blogging is literally the last thing I make time for these days. My pregnancy nesting mode is in full effect that I’m cleaning spaces that have nothing to do with our nursery like our workout room and our utility storage. When I finally sit down I usually fall right asleep versus get on my computer. Thank goodness it’s a new year because that forces me to get a post done to wrap up the last three months so I can start 2016 fresh blog-wise. While in the spirit of nesting, it also needs to apply to my blog. I’m going to remove my Facebook page that relates to this blog. It just seems so unnecessary. I never post to it separately so really it’s just re-posting my blog posts and tweets. I appreciate that some of you have liked my FB page and I hope you understand that it just seems like clutter these days.

Okay so onto the wrap up of 2015:

October was a very full including a trip to Hawaii, finding out that we are having a boy, and Chase’s first trick or treating experience. 😀

First, pregnancy update pictures:

We got the opportunity to travel to Hawaii with our company because Rob completed his Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU). It was a gamble to see if our 2 year old would handle a 9 hour direct flight (plus the waiting to get on the plane, off, shuttle, and hotel room) and a 5 hour time delay, but she was a champ! Chase was so excited for the flight that she wouldn’t nap. We don’t give Chase a lot of screen time so we came armed with movies on an iPad for her thinking that would buy a couple hours at a time watching Frozen or something else. However, within like 10 minutes of using it should would put it down and want to go back to imaginary play: dumping goldfish crackers into and out of cups, playing ‘house’ with her seat and mine, coloring, etc. Plus she loved using the potty every 30 minutes – hour because she got to see people as she walked by, dance while we waited in line, and then comment on how bumpy it was to go potty in the tiniest of rooms ever.

Finally we made it and enjoyed 5 days including Chase’s first time seeing the ocean, playing on the beach, swimming in the pool, checking out the hotel animals (fish, ducks, and parrots), our first luau, Chase’s first fireworks from our balcony, and our first submarine dive.

I’m so glad that we decided to take the trip because every day went really well. I’m also glad that we didn’t extend our trip and push our luck though. We stayed on Oahu and next time we plan to visit another island.

Oh and Rob got me a souvenir, my first Chanel handbag.

And that’s the nutshell recap of 2015. 🙂 Life will only get busier when our little boy arrives. So I’m not setting any particular goals for running or blogging. I want to take life as it comes this year and savor the time with Rob, Chase, and Baby J. I’ll document things twitter (@MrsCJ2003), instagram (mrscj2003), pinterest (mrscj), and blog here and there. Thanks for dropping by to check in!
